Many people think the Zoo slows down during the cooler months, but there are still a lot of opportunities to participate in special programs and to have more of the Zoo to yourself.
Stroller Safaris are informal exploratory experiences for children between the ages of 1 and 4 years old and their accompanying adult. During this program, you’ll use all five senses to connect with nature and animals. Participants enjoy a sensory activity, a meet-and-greet with an animal ambassador and an animal feeding experience during every Stroller Safari, all while forming connections with other little explorers and their adults in your group!
March’s Stroller Safari theme is March Mammal Madness. Participants will learn all about furry friends, including a special group of mammals called marsupials. On St. Patrick’s Day, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s EdVenture team will host a holiday Stroller Safari special that will highlight all things green in the worlds of flora and fauna!
Additionally, if you feel a little burned out on finding new at-home activities for your pre-school-aged child, we have a solution for you! Our Creature Connections program allows you to create and explore with your little ones without having to leave the comfort of your own home! These six-week series take place year-round and each session focuses on a different group of animals. We will provide prompts and activity ideas each week of the session to guide your exploration, as well as supplemental optional opportunities for exclusive “pop-ups” at the Zoo weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays (advance daytime admission is required), where they can meet the animal they’ve been studying. Up next, participants will learn all about the wonderful world of birds from March 11 through April 21.
